The job you do is incredibly important to the communities you serve.  And, probably the most difficult job around.  You chose your profession to serve others, yet you face experiences every day that you are not prepared for.  The population of adults with disabilities continues to grow.  There are 57 million adults in the US with disabilities...that's roughly 19 percent of the US population.  As an experienced special education teacher and special education administrator, addressing the unique needs of children and adults with disabilities is a challenge.  And, I have had years and years of experience in this area.  

I am on a mission to better prepare public service professionals, around the country, in approaching, addressing and supporting adults and children with disabilities.  As a parent of a child with severe disabilities, I know first hand, the challenges you will face.  I also live with the fear that he will be misunderstood.  

I believe that through training and education, we can better prepare our public service professionals to react and respond to crisis situations with our children and adults with disabilities.
